This is a review for the L-shape executive office suite, but I am posting it here in case helpful as they apply to this particular unit which I had a very bad experience of. Pros: i) Design: The design is very functional, providing lots of storage options, ample work space for your computer and doing paper work at the same time. ii) Value: for the price, this is a great deal, even with the issues listed below. As others have commented it does take a bit of work to put together, probably about an hour for each piece so 3-4 hours in total - but that is pretty normal for flat pack furniture. With a few exceptions, the instructions were pretty much on point, and everything lined up as it should have. The glue does seem like a waste of time though, and I had some specific issues with the instructions, which are noted below. I really want to give this four or even five stars, but there are three reasons I am giving it three stars: i) Large drawer unit was awful: the quality of most of the four piece set was OK, but I had significant issues with the large storage drawers - The locking screws they provide to hold the structure together are of low quality and several broke while I was tightening them. The drawers also did not fit together well when I got to the last step of putting on the front panel, meaning I had to drill my own new holes and screw in new screws to get the thing to hold together. - Lock system doesn''t work: first of all the instructions were missing a step on the very first step of insulation the locking system so when I got to the final stage I found I had to disassemble everything to add in a missing piece. When trying to remove the top drawer from the drawer slider, one side became dislodged and then bent the slider not he other side so it no longer slides smoothly, so I will probably replace it with a new slider from amazon. Bit of a paint, and still the lock system does't work. Even after installing the missing piece, the lock system doesn't line up properly the way it was meant to. By this point in the building, I gave up trying to find a solution and we probably don't need the lock anyway. ii) Cheap veneer: the entire four piece set is covered in a cheap veneer sheet. I don't expect too much for this price, but the quality of the veneer on the main desk is particularly low quality - it is already lifting and peeling off at the front edge which just looks awful. We will probably get some kind of laminate to try to seal it and protect it. iii) Poor instructions: warning for anyone buying the four piece set: the instructions are not clear on the order the units had to be built. I started with the corner desk which seemed like the logical "anchor" of the four piece set. However having constructed that I then found the left hand side panel of the desk unit actually needed to be used for the left hand side panel of the drawers, so I had to dissemble the desk, prop it up while I built the small drawers, and then re-attach. All worked in the end but just made more of a pain to construct. Pros: Functional design Cons: Awful quality

This filing cabinet was purchased with the goal of using it for a dresser along with a cooridinated, corner desk from the same manufacturer. The goal was achieved quite nicely...the two pieces work very well together, in a limited space and are pleasing to look at. The only negative issue was realized upon finished assembly...the top panel on the cabinet and the work surface of the desk have a barely perceptible "give", and although it is noticeable it is not a serious concern and I would be reluctant to repeat the assembly process....the affordable cost is worthy of compromise.
Wonderful Customer Service

Terrific customer service as I learned on the fly how to put this thing together. It looks nice if you don't look too closely at its blemishes, some came that way, I caused a couple. Definitely just for casual, home office
2 Drawer File Cabinet
Richard from Toms River, NJ – Verified Buyer
The 2 drawer file is much darker in color than I expected. It assembled fairly well, but it took a day longer, because all of the drilled holes were much larger than the dowels, causing me to wait for the glue to dry. Next time, I might choose a different manufacturer.
very nice file cabinet
Patricia from Bowie, MD – Verified Buyer
While it did take a lot of time to put the file cabinet together, it was worth it! There was lots of steps but the instruction book was great. All the pieces were correctly cut and nothing was missing. Also, the lock works great but is a little flimsy. This was a great buy and I would recommend it to everyone.

This cabinet is exactly what I wanted and works perfectly in my home office. It is a great size and will hold an abundance of files!! Thanks Wayfair!
fit the need
Joyce from sahuarita, AZ – Verified Buyer
this filing cabinet was hard to put together and there were very sketchy instructions but my husband is a wiz and he figured it out in no time even with the bad instructions. Like the cabinet however.
Assembly Time Nightmare
Rillbilly from CA – Verified Buyer
The product is generally okay. It mostly works as advertised but it took many hours to assemble such a simple looking cabinet. In the end, it wasn't worth my time to put this thing together. I'd rather pay a little more and buy a mostly assembled product rather than piece molecules together. The lock mechanism is a joke if not an annoyance.
